. >> george allen just conceded that race. julie is in richmond with more from tim kaine supporters. i imagine they're quite happy? >> there is a very fired-up crowd. they're getting ready for a victory speech. some of tim kaine's friends and family. he's held a lot of political titles in his career. virginia governor. he's been dnc chairman appointed by president obama and mayor and tonight he adds the title, virginia senator elect. by a slim margin he defeats republican challenger george allen to take over tha opened virginia senate seat. the seat opened because democrat jim webb decided not to run for re-election after a second term. it's been one of the most closely watched senate races in the country because it is one of the keyest of democrats. keeping control of the u.s. senate. we talked to virginia party chairman brian moran a short while ago and this is what he had to say about the big win tonight. >> we feel good. we've been looking at the numbers as soon as they started reporting and thank goodness northern virginia came in. once the numbers came in from fairfax, we felt real good
a senate race going on, car race between tim kaine and george allen, two former senators. guest: we have called it one of the closest races for the senate but we have tipped it to tim kaine. i relied pretty heavily on not just pulling averages but private tracking that i trust and views of people who have been around this state and its politics for decades. that expert judgment, that professional judgment, i think it's quite significant. the question is, how could george allen win? he could win if mitt romney, because of may be a bad jobs report tomorrow, picks up a lot of steam over the final weekend and ends up winning virginia, which is currently too close to call. it is one of the closest in 50 states between the presidential candidates. if romney wins by 3 points or so, he could potentially pull george allen to victory, just as i think coattails are playing a big role across the country in a lot of races. we think that elizabeth warren is going to win in massachusetts. she's going to defeat incumbents got down because president obama will get most of the vote. there's a weak candida
will continue to be democrats. tim kaine defeated george allen in the race to succeed jim webb. kaine won by six points in that race. it had been one of the most closely watched campaigns in that country. megan mcgrath is live at the tim kaine campaign headquarters right now. >> reporter: you can see that campaign signs are up along the road. the election is over. governor tim kaine defeated republican george allen. kaine thanked his supporters at a victory party in richmond last night. this race received national attention. democrat jim webb announced his retirement, and the republican party saw it as a real opportunity to gain a seat in the senate, a seat previously held by george allen before he was defeated by webb. millions of dollars were spent by groups outside of virginia in an effort to influence the outcome of this race. in the end, the voters picked tim kaine to be their u.s. senator. >>t's all about partnership. it's all about putting the country first, and virginia knows and shows how we can do it. so with these basic virginia values, we can take this nation forward, and i'm very ho
to the assembled democratic crowd, the oner, democrat tim kaine, addressed this point. is point. -- the winner, democrat tim kaine, addressed this point i don't so here what is it means, folks. here is what it means. our victory tonight proves that it is the number of people who stand with you, not the number of zeros behind the check. e ch that is what decides elections in the united states of america. >> reporter: i don't actually have the figures as to who spent more because the outside groups don't have to do a lot of reporting but i think more of it was spent on the republican side than on the democratic side. i am not told t totally sure of that this morning. but a peculiar thing happened during the celebration here last night. for much of the evening, on the presidential side, the republican mitt romney was leading in virginia. as kaine started speaking, he announced from the podium that president obama was going to be declared by one of the network as the national winner. but it still looked like obama was going to lose in virginia. and the crowd never got that announcement by tim kain
the returns come in, and that's where his opponent is going to be for most of the day, democrat tim kaine. now, this race is absolutely critical because it could very well determine which party is going to control the senate. this race has received more money and maybe even more attention than any other congressional contest in the country. and it's been a dead heat for the last year. a new poll out just yesterday, though, gave a slight edge to tim kaine, just three points, well within the margin of error, though. but it's an edge that the republicans could easily offset with organized and aggressive turnout. now, if the turnout here is any indication, i mean, look at these lines at just 6:00 a.m. it's going to be a very long, very cold day with big lines throughout the state of virginia. no doubt, though, both candidates, george allen and tim kaine, they are preparing for a very close race and a very long nerve-wracking night. we're awaiting the arrival of george allen, he should be here any minute and we'll bring it to you coming up. back to you mike and andrea. >> thank you, kristin, talk t
